Yoga for Life

I stumbled upon this guy just a week before (obviously) his story was in a free daily "newspaper".
Basically he's a recovering alcohol addict that does a head stand all day long to prevent himself from sliding back into old drinking habbits.
Sad, but true.
Also: the coins he earns on doing that all day long, no matter what the weather is like, safes him from becoming homeless.
I saw him and envy him for his strength and will to fight the obstacles of life.



Eine Woche bevor Österreichs cheesy Gratiszeitung seine Geschichte erzählte stolperte ich über ihn.
Ein genesender Alkoholkranker, der den ganzen Tag am Kopf steht, in erster Linie um nicht wieder rückfällig zu werden.
Traurig, aber wahr.
Ausserdem verdient er so seine Tantiemen, tagaus, tagein, bei jedem Wetter- es bewahrt ihn davor obdachlos zu werden.
Ich sah ihn und bewundere seine Stärke und den Willen die Steine, die einem das Leben in den Weg legt, zu überwinden.

  1. Yoga has been practiced for over two thousand years, so it's inevitable that over such a long period of time variations and divergences have occurred. Nowadays there are many different yoga practices and branches available to choose from.
